After announcing her pregnancy on Celebrity Big Brother, Kristina’s tum is becoming pretty noticeable
Kristina Rihanoff has given us a first proper look at her growing baby bump and it’s coming along nicely!
The former Strictly Come Dancing star – who announced her surprise pregnancy in the Celebrity Big Brother house – posed for a cute photo with a friend who’s also expecting as they compared their tums and it’s adorable.
Kristina’s preggo pal Katya Virshilas captioned the Twitter picture: ‘Lovely catch up with mama to be @KRihanoff #16weeks and me #25weeks pregnant !’
Proud Kristina cradles her bump in the snap as former Strictly dancer Katya mirrors her with her own bulging tum.
Kristina, who is due to welcome her first child with boyfriend Ben Cohen in the summer, seemed to enjoy getting to hang out with another expectant mum.
‘so good to run into you and Klaus! Finally I a friend who understands the baby talk ! Lol xxx,’ the 38-year-old Tweeted after seeing her pal.
Fans of the dancer were thrilled to get a glimpse of her increasing tum and many think she’s already glowing.
‘Oooooh so lovely, look at your gorgeous bumps! You look stunning and so happy. Many congratulations,’ one admirer commented.
Another wrote: ‘Pregnancy suits you Kristina, looking even more beautiful than ever!’
It comes just a few weeks after Kristina left both the CBB housemates and viewers stunned when she confirmed that she was expecting.
‘There was something [that] happened in my life before I came into the house over Christmas,’ Kristina explained after gathering the contestants together.
‘And obviously I thought it’s very private news, you know, but because we are living as one family now and everybody is sort of supporting one another now, it happened to be that I found that my boyfriend and I are going to have a little one.’
Rugby player Ben – who Kristina started dating last year, two years after they were paired together on Strictly – has remained quiet about the pregnancy.
Kristina recently confessed that news of their impending arrival came as a shock.
‘It was a surprise but I am obviously delighted,’ she told Hello! magazine exclusively. ‘My mother was with me over Christmas and when we found out she put her arms around me and she cried with joy.
‘It is her lifelong dream for me to have a child and it was lovely to see her so happy.’
